Suburban Living: A Shift in Priorities

30 April 2022
Suburban Living A Shift in Priorities

For years, small towns and rural areas have been experiencing brain drain as more people move to urban areas in search of education, personal growth and career opportunities.

 

But the sudden disruption brought by the COVID-19 pandemic has seemingly reversed the migration trend. As the coronavirus seems to impact more densely populated areas more severely than rural regions, a good number of homeowners are now rethinking where they want to live. Many are now thinking of relocating to the suburbs, away from bustling urban communities.

 

Forced indoors during for long periods of quarantine, many are realizing the immense mental health benefits of having easy access to the outdoor world.

 

In a post-COVID world where urban areas have been hardest hit, prospective homebuyers are consciously opting out of the busy city life in favor of calmer, quieter and more community-focused living in the suburbs.

 

At look at Rizal

According to Lamudi, demand for properties for sale at the online real estate marketplace showed a 10-percent increase the start of pandemic-induced restrictions last March 2020. Interest was rather strong east of Metro Manila, particularly Antipolo and Cainta in Rizal.

 

In Luzon, buying appetite following the pandemic was strong. During Q1 of 2020, 70–75 percent of overall leads were in Rizal, climbing further to 79–84 percent as of Q1 of 2022.

 

Even as the number of COVID-19 cases goes on a downward trend and the vaccination program continues, the stronger buying appetite in this region outside Metro Manila points to one obvious realization—moving to less densely populated areas like the suburbs of Rizal grants homeowners many advantages.

 

Haven of Eastern Metro

There’s a reason why cities have been designed with green spaces in mind: it’s a basic human need to be able to get outside and feel closer to nature. The cramped and compact city may offer all of today’s modern necessities but it lacks enough comfortable living space, especially for newly weds or families raising little ones.

 

The population density in the suburbs is substantially lower than the crowded city. And with less people living per square kilometer, suburban areas are less hampered by limited space, pollution, traffic jams and urban noise.

This kind of people-friendly environment fosters a unique sense of belongingness perfect for establishing a fulfilling family life.

 

Living within a close-knit community is also beneficial for nurturing social relationships, plus the fact that social distancing is always easier when you are away from urban sprawl.

 

With the advent of work-from-home and other off-site work arrangements, employers have realized that if work can be done as efficiently at home as in the office, maybe there is no need to stay within the confines of the concrete jungle anymore.

 

Lumina Homes

If you’re looking for a residential enclave in Rizal, consider Lumina Homes, the affordable housing arm of Vista Land & Lifescapes Inc. that offers quality, affordable house and lot properties in over 50 key locations nationwide.
